Year 1 have been using their balancing skills to complete a obstacle course in the gym. We has to climb, move, balance and swing to complete the course. The children had lots of fun and gained confidence each time they had another turn.
Today we have started our DT block on Mechanisms. We have been looking at sliders and how they work. This lesson we focused on cutting and sticking when making our new mechanisms. Soon we will put all of our new skills into use when making our Christmas cards.
Year 1 have had so much fun today. We have been making our own masks and creating pumpkins. After break, we had a party in class. We then watched a film in the hall.
The Year 1 children went into the computer suite for the first time today. We used 2Simple software to paint our own pictures on the computer and then we used the mouse to click and drag the paint brush on the page. Here is some of our beautiful work.
Year 1 have been reading the story ‘The colour monster’. We have talked about the different colours and the different feelings that the monster has. After, we all did some painting, drawing and pencil work.
